Ricciardo: Nothing to lose in appeal

Daniel Ricciardo believes he has nothing to lose when Red Bull's appeal against his exclusion from the Australian GP is heard
Daniel Ricciardo believes he has nothing personally to lose when Red Bull's appeal against his exclusion from the Australian Grand Prix is heard on Monday.

Having finished second in the race, Ricciardo was excluded by the stewards for constantly exceeding the fuel flow limit. However, Red Bull claimed the fuel flow sensor was faulty and ignored a technical directive from the FIA over what to do in such a situation as the team believes it can prove Ricciardo was always within the fuel flow limits.

Ricciardo confirmed to Crash.net that he will not be in Paris for the hearing on Monday – instead opting to focus on the Chinese Grand Prix – and says he already came to terms with the punishment he received in Melbourne at the time.

“I'll obviously wait to hear the result from the team, I'm sure they'll give me a call,” Ricciardo said. “There's nothing that I can do, there's nothing that I can really worry about. As far as I'm concerned let's say the damage was done on Sunday night in Melbourne. I'm not going to be any more upset than I was then.

“Obviously I would love to get them back; I would be pleased but in a way I've sort of dealt with it now and whatever happens, happens.”

If Ricciardo get back his 18 points from Australia, Red Bull will be catapulted from 4th to 2nd in the WCC. In the WDC Ricciardo will get ahead of the likes Alonso, Button, Vettel, maybe in third place, behind the Silver Arrows guys. Yes Ricciardo has nothing to loose but 18 pts are a nice amount to win them. Considering that Melbourne was his home GP, it would be nice to have that podium officially.
